Abstract

Ayurveda has described eleven Indriya’s, five Gyanendriya, five Karmendriya and one Ubhyendri, among them eye comes under Gyanendriya and in modern literatures it comes under sense organs. It is one of most important sense organ which is very much essential for social and intellectual development of a person. Many diseases of eye may occur due to defective life style changes particularly in busy modern life. As per the WHO statistics global blindness due to eye diseases is 37 million, due to refractive errors it is 8 million. Ayurveda found to describe vividly about ocular health, especially in Sushruta Samhita a wide description is available regarding eye diseases and its management. Acharya Sushruta has given much importance to eye as it is evident from the fact that the Uttara tantra of Sushruta Samhita starts with description of eye disorders and out of which intial 19 chapters are devoted only to eye diseases and their management. Hence to keep eye free from illness various aspects described in Ayurveda like Concept of Ritucharya, Dincharya, Anjana (collyrium), Aschyotan (eye drop), Snana(bath), Padabhyanga (foot massage with oil), Nasya (nasal application of drugs), Abhyanga (oil massage), various eye exercises and different yogic kriyas, rasayana etc. can be very helpful in this perspective.

Keywords: Eye, Dincharya, Ritucharya, Chakshushya, Rasayana, yoga.
